Remember that awesome regional event I held in 2016 on 4D foundations? Well, I’m putting together something similar…
For this October, I’m planning a free 1-day event/conference focused on teaching social practice. It will be located at UMass Dartmouth, and I’m surveying people to set the exact date and content.
Please spread the word! I’ve targeted people in Massachusetts / Rhode Island / Connecticut, but anyone is welcome.
Also, there are 3 travel stipends available for part-time instructors and/or grad students… read more at the link:
I made it to Germany for my residency at Künstlerhaus Lukas residency in Ahrenshoop! Above are a few of the initial photos from the first few days here.
The semester went really well! In 3D Design we focused on moldmaking/casting, 3D printing, woodworking/sewing, inflatables (pictured above). In Drawing II/Adv Drawing we focused on copying/synthesizing/morphing, as well as figure drawing and color (pictured below).

In Video Art we went on a field trip to DC to see the Bill Viola exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery, in addition to making a bunch of videos (pictured below).

I’m excited to announce, I’ve landed a job at U Mass Dartmouth as a full time lecturer of studio art/social practice! For those unfamiliar with the field, social practice focuses on social engagement and collaboration with individuals, communities, and institutions as a form of participatory art. I’ll be moving over the summer, and will start teaching in the fall.

Good news! “Chief Resource Management Officer Series” has been selected as one of the featured videos in the latest edition of the Serial Box Festival in Columbia, Missouri. They jury selected only 7 featured videos (plus eighteen non-featured) from more than 313 entries from 24 countries.
The videos will be screened before an outdoor audience gathered outside the Serial Box storefront as well as drivers and pedestrians who happen to be passing by. Videos are rear projected onto the plate-glass window at night, glowing and accessible to viewers and passersby. My video will be screened on the evenings of May 18-19, 2017. Screenings will also loop for 2 straight days on weekends between now and the end of December.
